Department of Public Health

Public health is the practice of protecting human beings against environmental factors or protecting the ecological balances essential to long-term environmental quality and thus human health. The need for environmental public health professionals is growing with the increased public demand for quality environmental and health practices.

The Department of Public Health at Concordia University of Edmonton works to develop and support the professional careers of students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. By staying up to date, and focusing on how changing trends affect public health practitioners, our programs foster a learning environment that is innovative and interactive.
